Re: [Condor-users] Newly Added Machines to an Existing Pool Remain Idle

Thank you for the suggestion. Indeed, the IA32 machines are not matched.

My next question is can I change the default requirements to not require the same OS and Arch as the submit machine? If so, how do I do this?

i have set up a condor pool with 10 machines that are all x86_64 arch

of the pool, however they remain idle. all the log files seem normal,
except no negotiation takes place and jobs are never claimed by any of
the recently added machines. thus, i was wondering if i need to change
a setting so these other machines will work with the cluster? also,
what particular files should i be looking at to debug this situation?

Any jobs you submit will have a default requirements expression to
say "require the same OS and Arch as the submit machine". x86_64 machines
have a different Arch than IA32 machines.

If that's the case, jobs will never match with the IA32 machines, and
they'll always stay idle.

You can check this by:

1. condor_q -analyze will tell you what how many machines match and how
many don't match.

2. You can check the negotiator log on the central manager to see how
many machines it is considering for matchmaking.

3. You can check the schedd log on the submit machine to see if you're
running into some problem that prevents running new jobs.
